D Acres of New Hampshire
Reviewed 17 September 2014

A week at D Acres wasn't enough as I was just starting to settle in comfortably after a few days. This is a wonderful location for biking, hiking, and touring both the White Mountains and Eastern Vermont. The house if gorgeous with a comfy library, social area, an impressive kitchen, and walking trails right outside the door. You can be as sociable or solo as you like.

Room Tip: Private or hostel rooms share the same bathroom which has a great shower & compost toilet.

We (2) liked our stay (1 night) at D Acres, because of the friendly hosts, the good food, the nice room, their library and the special features of this homestead. Everything contributed to a great experience and comfy stay. We were prepared and informed about the project and special eco emphasis of the place and that's why we choose D Acres. It was great for us Europeans to see a bit of a different kind of USA off the media cliche. We felt lucky to have found D Acres, would return again!

Room Tip: Any room will do after a full day's activities. It's the house, man!

This was an incredibly beautiful destination for my partner and I-- a serene and meaningful trip to the New Hampshire woods. We loved the hiking trails (though wished they were a little better marked as we got lost for a little bit), the farm (wow permaculture!!) and the tranquility (had the place to ourselves pretty much!). I would definitely recommend taking a trip out there. The hospitality was a little disappointing. We weren't expecting much as its kind of a "do it yourself" sort of place, but there was not a real welcoming vibe from the staff that worked there. We found out later that they were in the process of hiring someone for hospitality so maybe we were feeling begrudged staff taking on tasks they didn't sign up for. Anyway, it didn't ruin our stay, we enjoyed just doing our own thing! And we met some really nice apprentices on the day we volunteered and helped out in the field!

Room Tip: We slept in the community room the first night, which was the economical option for us! And then we...

If you seek a good place to stay or camp on the cheap, Dacres is your spot. Many people who climb Rumney stay here. Dacres is an Eco farm with a fun, funky, alternative vibe. Be sure to eat there! The food is excellent, cheap and most all of it is from the farm. The events there are well worth attending. I was at a Solstice celebration that was Rasta meets 1960s hippie meets Woodstock. As to rooms, there is a room with a queen bed, a group/family room sleeping 4 as well as a common room that can hold 12+ in sleeping bags, as well as camping, and some treehouse and alternative accommodations. Ask. There are nice hiking trails. Again: Be sure to eat there! Great food, at a bargain. Super-friendly staff. Toilet is composting, hot water is intermittent. Prepare to wait.

I camped here 1 night and then had their breakfast. We were just looking for an easy and nice place to camp after climbing all day. We made a reservation and when we showed up around 6 the staff was super friendly and showed us a big grassy area where we could setup our tent. This isn't a campground or anything like that, but there was plenty of space, nice facilities, and there was an area where everyone had a big fire at night. Breakfast was execellent as well...very fresh. It was something different and it was interesting to stay at a functioning farm and see what their mission is. I will definitely recommend and come back.
